If the bleeding is settling down and there is minimal pain then do not worry as it may be just one off. Occasionally periods can be disturbed due to stress, poor health and medicines like i-pill. Keep a menstrual calender for the next 3 months and see what happens.

If you have hypothyroidism then getting pregnant is difficult unless the condition is excellent control. When in good control tsh level should be between 3 to 4 milli units/ml. But for conception to occur tsh las to be between 0.3 to 2 milli units. Plus throughout the pregnancy also levels should be in the same range for fetal development and proper out come of pregnancy.

Misuse of creams and lotions advertised online

MD - Skin,VD & Lepxsy
Dermatologist, Hyderabad
Misuse of creams and lotions advertised online
Misuse of creams and lotions advertised online:

The widespread misuse of skin creams and lotions that contain steroids in india is harmful and out of control, warns dermatologist. 

Corticosteroids, also known as steroids, are anti-inflammatory medicines used for a range of conditions. However, these can lead to substantial and permanent damage, especially on thin skin, such as on the face and groin. 

Side effects include pigmentation and breakdown of the skin, small and widened blood vessels on the skin, as well as bacterial and fungal infections. 

Misuse can lead to resistance of infections that can make these difficult to diagnose and treat. 

" indian doctors are witnessing a pandemic of adverse effects induced by topical corticosteroids" consultant dermatologist shyam verma said in an article published in the journal the bmj, formerly the british medical journal. 

A study of 2, 926 dermatology patients in 2013 showed that 433 (14.8 percent) were using topical steroids and 392 (90.5 percent) had harmful effects, verma pointed out. 

" the public, as well as doctors of all specialties, need to be informed and educated about safe use of topical corticosteroids" he said. 

As required by law in india, strong steroids can be sold only with a registered medical practitioner's prescription. 

However, topical steroids are exempt and can be purchased over the counter. 

" this needs urgent revision" he said. 

Another problem that leads to the inappropriate use of topical steroids is that too few specialist dermatologists are available. 

The majority of india's some 8, 500 dermatologists are based in cities, while most of india's population are dispersed in villages, verma said. 

" so many patients seek treatment for skin disease from primary care providers, including thousands of ayurvedic and homeopathic practitioners and unqualified charlatans" he explained. 

" although it is illegal, they may prescribe topical corticosteroids with little or no knowledge of dermatology" verma said, adding that many pharmacists" sell steroid creams without a prescription, ignoring the box warnings"

B) Dysmenorrhea is a condition of painful menstrual cycles. The discomfort begins prior to or during periods. It may diminish in intensity after 25 years of age or after delivery. It is of two types:

Hello lybrate-user, * If given medicines not helping that means nothing more can be done. * Ask her to avoid juices and liquids. They cause more vomiting. * These vomiting gradually decreases by 4th month. It's very natural to have them and actually nothing needs to be done to stop them. 7-8 large vomitings (almost 100 ml each) per day are considered absolutely normal. Don't go against nature. Vomiting smaller than these needs to be neglected. * She can have dry biscuits, bread, kurmura, peanuts, fruit pieces instead of the meal. * Let her eat what she wants to. Only home prepared food. Forced feeding to be avoided. Weight loss in first four months is Normal. Later on there will be weight gain.

I am 35 years old and diagnosed with endometriosis and unhealthy fallopian tubes. My doctor has advised IVF. Please advise.

Endometriosis reduces success rate of any fertility treatment including IVF. We need to know how unhealthy the tube is. If there is hydrosalpinx, we may need to go for removal of the tube before IVF.
